Dedicated to ending the cycle of generational poverty and fighting hunger, BPNN has provided food assistance to low and very low-income households in Verona and parts of Fitchburg and Madison for 30 years. Our recent relocation to a larger, more accessible facility last summer allowed us to expand our services to include legal advocacy, a free community meal every Saturday, nutrition education and culinary instruction, and dramatically increase the size of our food pantry. We provide space for a Joining Forces for Families social worker, a program to help young adults with disabilities transition from school to work, and other groups focused on eliminating hunger and homelessness. We are 100% volunteer - all funds raised go back into programming and keeping the lights on.
